In Observance of Armistice Day & the 100th anniversary of WWI
In WWI Philip Lovetere, my late maternal grandfather, served in Company C, 1st Battalion, 64th Infantry Regiment, 14th Infantry Brigade, 7th Infantry Division.
He served in the Puvenelle Sector on the west bank of the Moselle River.
A free online digital edition is now available of Philip Lovetere’s divsion:

Philip Lovetere is not mentioned in the book.
Philip Lovetere could neither read nor write Italian or English so he personally did not write letters. If someone wrote them for him, none have survived.
However, what his unit experienced, at times at the company level, are discussed.
That is the basis for the detailed chronology on my family history site:
